message 1: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments OK then, Chromehoof, according to Wiki are an experimental chamber rock orchestra. Sounds a bit high faluting to me but let's see.

Only four albums as far as I can see, but maybe Fishy Jim can keep us right on that one.

Noms close 10 pm Sunday as ever, remember your youtube link, and have a stonkin' weekend.

You're right, Spacepig, only 4 albums - and the first one is not such an easy listen as the others. Note to any metal-heads, there are some heavy segments to some tracks.

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments Am I mishearing or not noticing much in the way of subtle differences or is 'A Ritual For Elephant And Castle' actually a live performance of 'Krunching Down (On The Skull Of A Newt)' ... ?

Not having heard Krunching, I couldn't say. Elephant is described as an 'improvised live rock-shamanic collaboration' between performance artist Marcus Coates and the band. Much of Coates's work is focused on Elephant & Castle in London, especially in regard to housing in the borough. The piece is from 2012.

You’re right suzy, live but identical. Oh dear!


message 15: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments I think that the Song has been incorrectly titled by the uploader on YouTube, Tim? It sounds almost identical to 'Krunching' - so I've had a wander around Google and it seems that 'Elephant & Castle' is the one that is performed by Marcus wearing a rather shocking outfit of a stuffed Horse's Head whilst making neighing noises.

Lez | 7490 comments Tim, we could just leave it and if we both get points just add them together and share the honours? 😀

Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments I can fix it but I am confused - what one needs deleted?

Fishy_Jim  | 887 comments I think an extension to the voting period is in order due to the confusion.

Well, as I don't feel that I can vote for the same song twice, the points will have to go to the live version.

message 25: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments Sorry, just catching up here. I'm afraid that extensions to the voting time aren't an option. My schedule is far too tight to be able to start changing days etc.

May be best going with Sussex's idea and just vote for whichever you prefer. Or, if that is too controversial, we can scrap this round and run it again later on?

Don’t worry Space, we don’t need an extension. There’s not been any delay, everything’s as usual. Tim and I are happy to share the votes, all’s right with the world!

Against all expectations I quite like this lot. Remind me ever so slightly of King Crimson or is that fanciful heresy? 🙄

Some people may not have voted in case there was a late change to the noms due to the confusion, then not come back later. I suppose it won't make a lot of difference though. Glad you have been pleasantly surprised, Lez.


message 31: by Tim (new)

Tim Franklin | 8591 comments After Lez. Should note that Krunching is genuinely my fave here - no attempt to 'fix' the result!

Looking through my LP shelves, I realised I own their first outing, a split album with Nervous Ice Mummy, bought unheard because I liked the band names. Should give it another spin sometime.

Musically, in a way, I suppose they are sort of okay. But as soon as that horrendous woman kicks in with her hollering, instinct takes over and the skip button gets a hammering.

Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments Time up then!

Straightforward this evening methinks, snaffling the gold this week, it's SussexWelsh with Kestrel Dawn. One point behind and grabbing the silver, the Duke's nom, Sea Hornet. And splitting the bronze, Tech and Val with Tonyte and Moss Covered Obelisk.

Well done to all, I see that mine got the reception it deserved :-)

theDuke | 5607 comments Congrats to Sussex Val, Tech and erm Me..again!

Musically, they're okay, but I have to agree with Spacepig, that the female singer was a tad grating to listen to! Sorry!


message 40: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments If I had had extra Points I would have also put some 'Mental Peptides' way ;o>

YAYYY!!! - Congratulations SussexWelsh ... x ;o>

And very well-nominated Duke, tech and Val ... x x x


message 41: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1445 comments To be perfectly honest, I thought they were dire. I only nommed that song because I had lost the will to listen to yet another in my attempt to find something I could connect with.

Guess I am just not the target audience for this lot.

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments I found Marcus Coates obsession with wearing dead stuffed animals as outfits to be extremely sad and quite disturbing ;o<

Were Coates' coats fur coats?

Fishy_Jim  | 887 comments I know that the regular female vocalist is an 'acquired taste'. It took me a while to get used to her. Interestingly, some lead vocals have been performed by Shingai Shoniwa, lead singer of Noisettes, e.g. on Knopheria, which is more melodic.

I enjoyed her singing. Weird stuff is good!


message 46: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14592 comments I enjoyed her actual singing too - but I have to say I've heard far more melodic screeching and screaming than hers in the Back Streets around here when the Local Pubs empty and close up for the night - LOL!!! ;o>
